Saving Money on Groceries
I'm on a quest! I am looking for ways to save money on groceries without coupon clipping. I really don't like sitting down to clip coupons. I'll do it if that is the only way but...
So, one of the ways to save money is to have a "price book." My price book will contain a page (or two) for each grocery store I frequent. On each page is a list of items I usually purchase.
The idea is, I will have a list of prices and sizes of items. As I go from store to store and find things on sale, I will be able to look at my price book and see where it is cheapest. As I find items on sale in flyers or on the shelf, I will be able to compare. Yes, that means I have to take my binder with me while shopping.
I guess you could call it a "price comparison book."
I started by printing a simple worksheet that I found online (the link is at the end of the post). I three hole punched it and stuck it in a binder I already have.
I went through the grocery store as I normally would. I started where I would normally start and I ended where I would normally end. I wrote down the price of each item that I would normally purchase as I went along doing my normal shopping.
At the end of the night, I had 2 groceries stores done and it didn't take very much more time than doing my normal grocery shopping.
Here is the price comparison sheet I used. It's a FREE download.

Another thing I am doing to save money is menu planning. I'll fill you in on that in another post.
